Poultry Palace Car on film

gary laakso

Vintage Video;s Western Pacific, 1910-1960 includes a scene with a Poultry Palace car placed in mid street for unloading in Oakland, California.  The year is not specified, however, the autos suggest that it could be the late 1920s or early 1930s.

If anyone can add info on Poultry Car movements it would be grand.    I have learned these cars ran in California as well as out of the Midwest to East Coast markets.

     I have a photo of one from Arnold Menke, PPWX 100, lettered "Pacific Wholesale Poultry Co., Petaluma, Calif."
